Victor Lim Seaward


Victor Seaward's work is rooted in materiality, technological manufacture and the agency of objects. Mining a broad spectrum of material culture, Seaward juxtaposes utilitarian materials such as concrete and steel, with high-tech manufactured components and objects of historical significance, in order to investigate authorship, commodity and the fluid nature of time and permanence. Seaward (b.1988, Kuala Lumpur) studied BA History of Art at University of Leeds (2007-2010) and MA Painting at Royal College of Art (2016-2018).

Recent exhibitions include: Elbow Room, The Sunday Painter, London (2022); Still Life, Fabian Lang, Switzerland (2022); Holy Bark, Zabludowicz Collection, London (2022); On the Other Hand, Canary Wharf curated by Brooke Benington (2021); Orcale, Josh Lilley Gallery, London (2021); 5th Edition of Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer curated by Brooke Benington, Fulmer (2020); Listen to the Hum, Alice Black Gallery, London (2019); Nebelmeer, Recent Activity, Birmingham (2019); Vanitas, Rectory Projects, London (2019); Isabelline and Other Colours, Lily Brooke, London (2019); Outlines Roughly the Size of a Suit - Two Person with Luke Burton, Union Gallery, London (2019).
